Museum Catharijneconvent has a collection of more than 70,000 objects. The museum has a generous loans policy and makes many of those objects available for loans to Dutch and foreign institutions.

Loan requests

We like to receive loan requests as early as possible, preferably at least six months before the opening of the exhibition.

When assessing the loan request we will take account of the availability and condition of the requested works, the purpose of the request, and the condition of the location where the loans will be housed during the loan period. Loans are granted under standard conditions. We aim to notify you of the outcome of your request within two months of receipt. Museum Catharijneconvent subscribes to the standard principles of loan conditions within the Netherlands.
